Meet The Team


Maggie Lopez TCRG
Owner and Director

Maggie started Irish Dance as a Bracken dancer at the age of 7 when Bracken had a location in Tucson, AZ; when the Bracken school moved to Phoenix in 2006, she continued her dance journey with with the Maguire Academy where she competed until 2016.  She assisted teaching in classes from age 13 until receiving her certification in 2017. Maggie always loved everything Irish and even studied abroad in Ireland for a semester to learn the traditional and regional sides to Irish dance. She has taught students from ages 2 to 75 and enjoys the unique aspects of each age group and skill level.  She is very passionate about making sure the students are happy, loving dance, and feel like their needs are being met. At the competitions, you will probably find Maggie running from ballroom to ballroom trying to see everyone dance. Irish dance has been a part of her heart since the very beginning and she is excited to be back with the Bracken School!
